He looks at the tattooed leather, to Identify what sort of skin it might be... then looks through the book, before starting to read it.

In reply to Gareth (msg # 356):

"Safwan doesn't know whether the master is dead; he went away a long time ago. In either case the [grunt] prohibited books must remain safe, and his creations and wards will ensure they do. Come now, there is much to learn right in this room."

there are no maps of the tower in this room.

Adept, that leather looks like it might be from one of the scaleless people, rather than from a fourlegged creature.

OOC: I'm waiting on the narrator to give me details about the master of the Black Tower. Then I have to decide how much to share with a bunch of murderous home invaders who are only keeping me alive to pump me for information...

OOC: I think posting it here somewhat undermines the idea of privacy... OK, private messages do work...

Safwan tells Gareth the master of the tower wears a blue robe, a sigil ring, and a pendant.

GM: Any more complete description of the ring? If not, Safwan will say it's an image of the tower inside a pentagram just as appears on the inside cover label of the master's books.

Amellia looks up from the books, "Are we going to go any further today? Or shall I take my shoes off and settle down to read these good books?"

That is something in and of itself.

"I suggest we keep looking around before continuing on. We do not know who might wander in and disturb us, violently.

Thing...what was your name again? You really do not know anything about the guy that created you?

Amelia looks up from her book, multitasking as usual, asks ,"How many day since he left? And, apart from him leaving, were there any unusual events or messages at or a short while before that time?"

you are not entirely certain as to how time might be marked by someone who doesn't sleep and exists underground.


Gareth, make a Thaumatology or hidden lore magic items roll.
